  • Ace value?

    I just swapped stright across for this Colt Ace .22 conversion unit.
    It is pretty well pitted but the bore and chamber are nice. Any idea what it would be worth in this condition? I know that Colt, Winchester, and Smith are is rated in the blue book, even in very poor condition...
    Just curious.
    Maybe I'll shoot it this weekend and report!

    Colt conversion kit value

    It is a pretty early one judging from the rear sight. You are missing the recoil spring and slide stop - they are different from the .45 ones.

    I'd guess $250 - $350 as a shooter- with the pitting it does not have much collector's value. Early nice ones bring $500 or so.

    If it has a "U" prefix serial no. it would be worth somewhat more.

      For a recoil spring, a Gold Cup .45 spring will do(same thing). Recoil plug same as Governmet model.

        Looks like its missing the ejector as well. Unless its sitting in the slide, but usually they are loose with the barrel pulled out.
